If there's one thing we can say about Godwin with Tom Brady under center, it's that he's a near lock for six-plus targets per game. He saw at least six targets in 10-of-12 games despite all the other talent on the roster, which is never a bad thing. The downside is that Godwin never really got into any sort of WR1 groove. He didn't hit the 100-yard mark until Week 17, when Mike Evans was essentially out of the lineup. To be fair, Godwin was playing through a few injuries last year, which may have hindered his upside, but we did watch Mike Evans' relationship with Brady grow as the year went on. On top of that, Antonio Brown and Rob Gronkowski returned to game shape, which will certainly cap everyone's upside. Godwin should be a solid WR2 on a weekly basis, but it's tough seeing him approach top-12 territory without an injury to one of Evans or Brown.It seems the torch has been passed from Thielen to Justin Jefferson, though it's not as if Thielen will just fade into oblivion. It goes back to the Stefon Diggs days where he had to share that production. While Thielen did finish as the No. 8 wide receiver last year, it was thanks to his 14 touchdowns on just 74 receptions and 925 yards. No other receiver finished higher than No. 18 with fewer yards than Thielen. He's also going to be 31 years old at the start of the season and has a history of back issues, presenting a bit of risk, though he does have a ton of proven production with Kirk Cousins, which can't be ignored.

Godwin is really TD dependent now. He's not a deep threat which puts more pressure on him to score to have good weeks given the lower volume. There are just too many mouths to feed in Tampa with Mike Evans, Antonio Brown, Gio Bernard, Gronk, OJ Howard, etc. An ADP of 51 is too early for a WR with limited upside. AvoidThielen set a personal best last season with 14 TDs. He had fantasy owners Hooked on a Thielen (That's reference to Blue Swede's song lyrics for our younger viewers haha!) Anyway, I digress, where was I? Oh yeah those TDs probably comes down a little, but maybe he'll make up for it with more yardage? Justin Jefferson will eat into some of his targets, but also may draw more coverage. The Vikings play a tough schedule. For that reason I'll downgrade him just a smidge.

While Godwin's production certainly wasn't the same in 2020 as it was with Jameis Winston in 2019, he was still one of the most consistent options for your fantasy lineup last season. He did have some peak games here or there, but otherwise there were only one or two performances where he hurt your lineup. Looking to 2021, it's certainly still a very loaded offense around him - which puts a cap on his overall ceiling - but he's still going to be one of the safest bets you can make in fantasy this year. You'll know exactly what you're going to get from him week after week and he does come with some upside that can push your team over the top to a victory. The casual fantasy player might be scared off because of how many other mouths there are to feed in this offense, but Godwin should be one of the top options yet again. He can be viewed as a high-end WR2. My Very Early Projection: 90-1210-8 receiving. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Tom Brady threw for 40 touchdowns and he wants to play until 45 years old, there is no reason to believe Godwin will not be a low-end WR1 in 2021 as long as Brady continues to shine.Thielen feels like he overachieved a little in 2020 with 14 receiving touchdowns in 15 games. He is still a very good receiver, but I think Jefferson is a fantasy WR1 and Thielen is more of a fantasy WR2.

Back to TB under franchise tag - him and Brady really hit stride towards end of year
